Folkscanomy Crime and Justice: Criminal Acts

Folksonomy: A system of classification derived from the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content; this practice is also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, and social tagging. Coined by Thomas Vander Wal, it is a portmanteau of folk and taxonomy.

Folkscanomy: A collection of books and text derived from the efforts of volunteers to make information as widely available as possible. Because the metadata related to these scanned books are often done outside the library or cataloging industries, finding material can be more difficult. The Folkscanomy collection attempts to add a layer of classification for easier navigation.

This collection is Folkscanomy Crime and Justic.

International journalist-author, Pierre van Paassen, weaves together a lifetime of phantasmagorical personal stories, ostentatious tall tales and deliciously embellished memories as a travel corespondent in his epic memoirs, 'To Number Our Days' (405 pages), published in 1964 by Charles Scribner's Sons, New York. Historical Notability Pierre van Paassen is most often cited post-1964, for his unverifiable claim that in 1922, while he was investigating the Leo Frank case files at the Fulton...

Tom Watson: Agrarian Rebel (1938) by C. Vann Woodward, the scathing and unflattering classic biography of Tom Watson, an attorney and populist politician from Georgia. Concerning the Leo Frank Case, Historian C. Vann Woodward wrote, the trial evidence was “overwhelmingly more incriminating [of Conley] than any produced against Frank.” Tom Watson is most often cited as instigating the lynching of Leo Max Frank, a Jewish factory superintendent who was convicted for beating, raping and...

Five Argument in the Leo Frank Case by Berry Benson, is an analysis of the infamous "death notes" found next to the dead body of Mary Phagan in the basement of the National Pencil Company. Benson takes the position in favor of Leo Frank and argued on his behalf, concerning the now century long dispute over whether or not Jim Conley wrote the "death notes" alone or Leo Frank dictated them to Conley who then paraphrased them in Negro dialect. Rarely ever discussed with any...
